Morning guys,

Another update on the Mercedes we map for our customers, this was a fine example and was very well looked after! We where very surprised when our customer arrived and the vehicle is a manual!!! :shock: We have never mapped a manual C-Class before which made our lives a little easier as we didn't have to map the shift patterns (Well that's what we thought).

However the ECU variant (Hardware, software and software update numbers) meant that it was extremely difficult to get the programming right and took hours!!! :mad:

We got it perfect and basically managed three days of development in 5 hours!

Here are some pics

She's lookin a little dusty from the long drive up!

A great day though, as explained there was a little trouble getting the map uploaded due to a couple of small technical hitches but nothing GAD couldnt handle.

Now the map is completed, the car is completely transformed! Bucketloads of torque and more power all through the revs.

Really impressed with the service as well the guys took time out of their day to ensure the job was done 100% properly and everything was perfect at the end of the day.

Will be hearing from me in the future for sure, big thanks.

Another Manual Mercedes owner to add to the forum collection. it seems we are on the increase!

what were the before and after figures for BHP and Torque?

Saloon, Sport Spec, Manual, Diesel, and the biggest CDI engine (power output wise) MB currently make with a manual gearbox. perfection, to me!

Yeah I am absolutely loving the car now! I did complain a bit after first getting it, i was expecting the C250 to be rapid as standard but i really did feel that the car was lacking oomph particularly near the top of the rev range.

Unfortunately i dont have any accurate before and after figures for the power. It was raining that day so we couldnt use a GPS dyno, and the office i visited didn't have a rolling road.

I will get it dyno'd at some point in the not too distant, but apparently with the setup the way it is on the car the estimate gains are around 45bhp and 85nm of torque.
